Cake, Bake & Sweet Show 2018


Cake, Bake & Sweet Show


Miscellaneous Review:  Cake, Bake & Sweet Show

Address: ICC Sydney, Darling Harbour



What I liked best about this event:

This is an annual event held in Sydney and other cities in Australia. The event runs over 3 days. People from the community and businesses can open accessible exhibits and stalls. Even famous chefs come to host presentations. These are a great chance to get close and personal with your favourite celebrity chefs.

My friend Cass and I ventured to this event on the Sunday 25 November 2018.

My first time at this event was 4 years ago. I always manage to have the best of luck running into the celebrities. Last time I managed to get a quick snap with Adriano Zumbo.



This year I was lucky to run into the beautiful Katherine Sabbath. She was very lovely and happy for us to have a photo taken together. If you even read this Katherine, I really appreciated it.



We walked through the "Art of Cake" exhibit. This showed us some high quality decorated cakes!


We had time to catch a show on the main stage, hosted by Anna Polyviou. She had the entire crowd pumping with excitement. 

We saw a lady at the Liddell demonstration stage, telling us about her lovely Christmas cake. She even let us try some and it was delicious.



We even got to see a bold performance from the Knafeh guts in their shipping container. My friend shared her Grandmothers Knafeh once and told me about these guys, so I always wanted to try. If you ever see these guys shipping container in your Westfield car park, I recommend you try it. As they quoted it taste "like a warm Creme Brulee".



If you missed the event this year, try to go next year. You don't know who will pop up or what you will learn.

Feel free to comment, if you attended or attended in the past? What did you see? What did you like? What did you learn? What did you enjoy about the show? Did you buy any goodies?

Gami Chicken (Central Park Chippendale)



Restaurant: Gami Chicken (Central Park Chippendale)

Address: Lower Ground Floor, Central Park Mall, 28, Broadway, Chippendale NSW 2008


What I liked best about this place
I absolutely love fried chicken! And this place had really nice chicken. The original chicken with Honey mustard was a very good combination. But I think the Garlic soy fried chicken was tastier. My absolute favourite thing I ate here was the cheesy corn. Something so simple and yet I never thought of before!


What was ordered:

Corn Cheese – $9.8 , Seasoned loose corn covered with seared cheese and sprinkled parsley served on a sizzling plate.

Potato heaven – $14, 3 different layers of a signature potato. Mashed creamy potato, cheese and wedges are in layered harmony.
